To 19th-century writers the dynamic periodical press appeared both an influential medium and a means to pay the bills.

How did women fare in Grub Street, could they harness the power of the press, and who were the "lady journalists"?

Drawing on varied contemporary sources and a database covering hundreds of women, this work assesses women's contribution to journalism and how it affected the careers of writers as diverse as George Eliot, Anna Maria Hall, Mary Braddon and Charlotte Yonge.
